Description

The MSS60312 Advanced Diploma of Competitive Systems and Practices specifies the competencies required by managers and technical specialists responsible for the implementation of competitive systems and practices in an organisation.

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge required by a manager or technical specialist to determine and supervise the strategy for implementing competitive systems and practices in a large organisation and in the organisation’s value chain, or in an organisation where the implementation of competitive systems and practices is particularly complex. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies.

This qualification provides the skills needed to improve efficiency in an organisation through the implementation of competitive systems and practices. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying operational, production, maintenance, logistics or other technical skills to industry. Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from other Training Packages should be considered.

The skills in this qualification are often known in industry under a variety of titles many of which relate to manufacturing which is the origin of many competitive systems and practices. The most common term is lean manufacturing. However, other names for some of the system skills and techniques include agile manufacturing, lean operations, six sigma, lean six sigma, and so on.

Job roles/employment outcomes

The main target job roles related to this qualification are:

  • people with operating responsibility for a whole area, site or organisation and who are managing the implementation of competitive systems and practices
  • technicians and other specialists providing high-level support and supervision of the implementation of competitive systems and practices across an organisation or site.
  • The target job roles may be in large organisations in production or operations, office maintenance, transport and logistics or in small or medium organisations where the implementation of competitive systems and practices is particularly complex.

    Application

    The primary application of this qualification is where an individual has responsibility for determining, implementing and managing the implementation of competitive systems and practices across an organisation. The qualification targets individuals working on competitive systems and practices implementation scenarios in large organisations or where the implementation of competitive systems and practices is particularly complex because of either the complexity of processes and equipment, a large and extended value chain, or the extent of change required for effective competitive systems and practices implementation.

    Responsibilities may also include liaison with the organisation’s value chain on implementing and measuring the performance of competitive systems and practices.

    This qualification provides competitive systems and practices skills that can be applied in the following organisations and environments:

  • manufacturing enterprises
  • mining and service organisations
  • organisations in a manufacturing value chain, such as:
  • suppliers
  • customers
  • distributors, warehouses, transport suppliers and other logistics support organisations
  • professional service suppliers, for example, legal, engineering, accounting, auditing, and education and training suppliers that may be assisting other organisations in implementing competitive systems and practices
  • other organisations implementing competitive systems and practices, for example, Government Departments, healthcare providers, transport organisations, and so on.
  • Student Outcomes
